Unique Father’s Day Gifts

Happy Father's Day

Dads come in all shapes and sizes, just like donkeys. Some dads are big and strong, some are small and soft. Some dads are naughty, some are sensible. Yet the most important thing is that they’re your dad – or even your husband, grandad or just a great friend.

This Father’s Day a charity gift is the perfect way to honour someone with such a big heart. It costs just £24 to adopt a donkey – just £2 a month – and in return your special man will receive a friend for life and you’ll help The Donkey Sanctuary to care for mules and donkeys in the UK and across Europe.

Plus, adopting a donkey is also the perfect last minute gift. You can easily purchase an adoption online and download the certificate at home. This year we’re also giving you the opportunity to download an exclusive Donkey Sanctuary card to complete your gift. You can choose from 2 pre-coloured designs to print at home, or, if you’re feeling crafty, 2 designs to colour in with the family.

With 23 donkeys to adopt there are plenty of personalities to pick from. So what kind of dad do you have?

His gentle nature made him an essential part of the team. Now retired, Cocoa lives in Sidmouth.

He’s a real gentleman and a handsome looking chap with a glossy chocolate-brown coat.

The Mischief Maker

As the joker of the family, your dad knows how to have fun. He loves a good practical joke and likes to keep everyone on their toes. A bit like our Ashley.

Orphaned at birth Ashley had a hard start to life, but he’s come on leaps and bounds (quite
